Yes.  Thanks for a concise summary.

I do not see how it makes any sense to have the "This is where the
section begins with, and its name is this" line in the middle of a
block indented in such a way.  Care to explain?

I can see some people may care more about the description than the
list of commits [*1*], though.


*1* It however is an indication that the title of each commit needs
to be improved to convey enough information so that I do not have to
write the branch description myself for them.
